Hexanol Price Trend and Forecast

Regional Price Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Hexanol in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

Throughout the fourth quarter of 2021 North American Oxo Alcohol prices were flat. In the meantime, demand fundamentals remained stable to solid, putting pressure on the domestic market's high consumption rate. Furthermore, the plasticizer sector, which is a key driving sector for 2-Ethyl Hexanol, displayed unfavourable emotions, contributing to the rapid drop.

Furthermore, past unforeseeable natural disasters such as freezing weather pushed up costs of various raw commodities in the country, including 2-EH, which is currently stabilising. During December, 2-Ethyl Hexanol prices were reported to be hovering around 2150 USD/MT FOB.

1-Hexanol, an organic compound, is an alcohol made up of a chain of 6-carbon atoms. This colourless liquid is slightly miscible in water whereas it readily dissolves in ether as well as ethanol. The other two straight-chain isomers of 1-hexanol are 2-hexanol and 3-hexanol, both of which differ based on the placement of the hydroxyl group.

Production Processes

  • Production of Hexanol via Oligomerisation of Ethylene; and via Hydroformylation of 1-Pentene

To produce Hexanol via oligomerisation, ethylene is used as a starting material. In this process, ethylene is oligomerised with the help of triethylaluminium, followed by the oxidation of alkylaluminium products. This method results in the formation of a range of oligomers that are finally separated through distillation to obtain the desired product.
